The Dog Sitter

One dog. Two strangers. An unfurgettable romance.

Wanted: someone nice, normal and trustworthy to housesit a beautiful cottage in the Lake District while the owner is away on a business trip. Must like dogs.

Wanting to escape from crap bosses and useless boyfriends, Becky jumps at the chance of being a dog sitter and the perfect escape – rest, relaxation and a very cute pooch called Bella.

But looking after Bella comes with a catch, namely gorgeous, brooding, Chris Hemsworth-worthy Ash James, who claims Bella is his dog and will stop at nothing to get her back!

Becky’s not about to hand over lovely Bella to any Tom, Dick or Ash.  She’s determined to watch every move Ash James makes…even if it gets her very hot under the collar.

Zara Stoneley is the USA Today bestselling author of The Wedding Date.

Born in a small village in the UK, she wanted to be a female James Herriot, a spy, or an author when she grew up. After many (many) years, and many different jobs, her dream of writing a bestseller came true.

She writes about friendship, dreams, love, and happy ever afters, and hopes that her tales make you laugh a lot, cry a little, and occasionally say ‘ahhh’.

Zara now lives in a Cheshire village with her family, a lively cockapoo called Harry, and a very bossy (and slightly evil) cat called Saffron.

Zara’s bestselling novels include ‘The First Date’, ‘Bridesmaids’, ‘No One Cancels Christmas’, ‘The Wedding Date’, ‘The Holiday Swap’, ‘Summer with the Country Village Vet’, ‘Blackberry Picking at Jasmine Cottage’ and the popular Tippermere series – ‘Stable Mates’, ‘Country Affairs’ and ‘Country Rivals’.

My Review

Becky is a talented artist who is stressed out, burned out, and on her way out of town. After her breakup with Teddy, the control freak, she has decided to accept a dog-sitting position out in the country. Leaving London for the Lake District is just what she needs to get her life together.

She’s hoping that this time will be relaxing and she can dog-sit and get some of her work done. She arrives at Georgina’s beautiful cottage to find Bella, the dog, waiting for her. Bella is a bouncing, fluffy dog who is about to change her life.

Georgina has already left and she’s off to deal with a bad breakup. She’s a very uptight Instagram Influencer who has used Bella to grow her career. But, the old boyfriend comes around because he wants to claim Bella as his own.

This begins the adventure of Becky and Ash. Ash comes around often and says he wants to take Bella home with him. Becky vows to protect Bella. But, they are attracted to one another and end up spending lots of time together. There are lots of walks and hikes in the English countryside.

Things get more complicated as they get closer. And, just when you think you know what will happen next, you’ll be surprised. Will they get together? Will Ash kidnap Bella?

There are three wounded people in this book and you’ll have to read it all to find out what will become of each one. The book is interesting and I really liked the plot. There was a good bit of humor. I’m rating it PG-13 for sexual content and language.
